CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS


WOVEN RUGS:  Should be professionally flat washed or dry cleaned. Hand wash: wash with soap in Luke warm water. Rub with a soft brush and rinse carefully. Hang the rugs from the long side so that the water can run off. The rug may become a little “bubbly” but this disappears after a while.

TUFTED RUGS: Should be professionally flat washed with foam. For best results, use textile shampoo, a soft brush and not too much water. Do not spin dry! Do not dry clean.

KNOTTED RUGS: Should be professionally flat washed or dry cleaned. Woven and knotted shaggy rugs should be professionally flat washed or dry cleaned. Shake the rug outdoors occasionally in order to lift the pile.

TUFTED SHAGGY RUGS: Should be professionally flat washed with foam. For best results, use textile shampoo, a soft brush and not too much water. Do not spin dry! Do not dry clean! Shake the rug outdoors occasionally in order to lift the pile.

IMPORTANT: Never dry rugs in a tumble drier or drying cupboard. Hang the rug up to dry. It is important that the rug does not lie damp for too long, as this can cause yellowing.
